Disney MagicBand+ has arrived at Walt Disney World resort! This new offering has guests excited to experience the Disney Parks in a whole new way. In case you missed it, MagicBand+ features all of the features you love from the classic MagicBand with a little extra magic! Today we’re sharing our top five tips for mastering the Disney MagicBand+ on your next Walt Disney World vacation.

Take the Time To Customize Your Settings
Disney MagicBand+ is so much more than your way into the theme parks. This new technology notifies you of magic found all over the Disney Parks. These notifications include vibrations, lights, sounds, and more. To ensure the optimal Disney MagicBand+ experience, take a few minutes to update your settings in the My Disney Experience app. You can choose your light up theme as well as brightness, vibration level, and other interactive features you may encounter. This seems like a simple step, but taking the time to customize these settings to your liking in advance will save you the headache in the parks.

Order in Advance
If you know you’re planning on rocking a Disney MagicBand+ on your next Disney vacation, it’s best to order yours before you arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Disney MagicBand+ options are available on ShopDisney, but a more extensive selection of styles can be found in the Pre-Arrival upgrades for Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests and Annual Passholders. No matter which way you shop, you’ll be glad to have your hands on your Disney MagicBand+ so your new device is ready to roll on your first park day! If it’s too late to place your order before your trip, no worries! Disney MagicBand+ is available at various shops on property in the parks, resort hotels, and even Disney Springs.

Link To Your My Disney Experience
While linking your Disney MagicBand+ to your My Disney Experience account isn’t required to enjoy the devices features, it is a tip that we suggest. You can experience the interactions from the Fab 50 statues and nighttime spectaculars whether it’s linked or not, but that’s only half of the fun! In order to scan into the parks, Lightning Lane, and more, you’ll want to link to your My Disney Experience account. Without linking, these basic functions from the classic MagicBand won’t be possible on the new Disney MagicBand+.

Keep it Charged
One thing that sets Disney MagicBand+ apart from the classic MagicBand is the fact that it requires a battery. With so many new bells and whistles to experience throughout the parks, you’re going to want to make sure you’re all charged up! The best way to ensure your Disney MagicBand+’s battery is good to go each park day is by charging it overnight. While Disney claims that the device’s battery should last 1-3 days, this battery duration can vary based on your level of activity in the parks. It wouldn’t hurt to keep a Disney MagicBand+ charger in your park bag on those longer days, too!

Take Advantage of All the Offerings
Disney MagicBand+ interacts with a few different park experiences, especially during the World’s Most Magical Celebration. While making your way around the parks, don’t forget to stop at each of the Fab 50 statues to see what these Disney characters have to say. Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunter is a new game exclusive to Disney MagicBand+ that helps you explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in a whole new way. Last, the nighttime spectaulars are even more impressive when you’re wearing a Disney MagicBand+! Your device interacts with the sights and sounds of the show, all on your wrist.



Disney MagicBand+ is the new coolest thing around the Walt Disney World parks, so you’ll want to make sure you follow these top tips if you decide to rock one on your next Disney Vacation. It’s exciting to see this new offering finally make its way to the parks!
